    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2419] March 1, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    News panel:
    BUDGET SEQUESTRATION - With budget talks on Capitol Hill at an impasse, the nation braces itself for automatic federal spending cuts, also known as "the sequester," that will affect major programs from education to the military. How hard and where will California be hit?
    BAY AREA HOUSING PRICES RISE - Bay Area real estate prices are on the rise. In almost every corner of the region, home-price appreciation is outpacing projected national growth. Whether low-end, high-end or somewhere in the middle, some analysts say there are too few houses for sale to meet buyer appetite.
    PROP. 8 AND DOMA - The Obama administration urged the US Supreme Court to strike down Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage. Silicon Valley companies, prominent Republicans and several state attorneys general have filed similar briefs in the past weeks as the high court prepares to consider the constitutionality of Prop 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act later this month.
    Guests: Andrew Ross, San Francisco Chronicle; Carolyn Said, San Francisco Chronicle; and Jolie O'Dell, VentureBeat.
    AILEEN HERNANDEZ: A PIONEER FOR WOMEN AND CIVIL RIGHTS - Born in Brooklyn, New York to Jamaican parents, Aileen Clarke Hernandez experienced the insults and injuries of racism and sexism early in life and dedicated herself to combatting those forces. Graduate school and an internship with the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union drew her to California. An early and passionate advocate for women's rights, Hernandez was appointed by President Lyndon Johnson as the only woman to serve on the newly established US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. She went on to found and eventually become president of the National Organization for Women. Now in her 80s, she chairs the California Women's Agenda, a state alliance of over 600 organizations, and is the founder and coordinator of the San Francisco Bay Area-based Black Women Stirring the Waters discussion group. Hernandez was recently featured in "Makers", a sweeping PBS documentary that showcases the stories of some of America's most influential women.

    New Tricks [#306] Bank Robbery When police informant Pete MacKintyre returns to the UK for his son's 18th birthday after 17 years on the run, he leads Gerry to fresh evidence about an unsolved armed robbery in which a bank cashier was shot and killed. The police have long suspected the man behind the robbery to be known criminal Ray Cook, now a C-list celebrity and angry to be in UCOS's radar. With MacKintyre's help, Standing recovers a sawn-off shotgun and a microtape, which Lane discovers is the audio of the robbery. The gun is a link to Ray Cook - but with a watertight alibi of being at his mother's deathbed on the day of the robbery, Cook is proving difficult to nail and even more difficult to track down to interview. Halford and Lane interview Geoff Lyons, a former security guard for the bank at the time of the robbery and an ex-copper. While Lyons is keen to point the finger at Cook, it becomes clear that this wasn't a one man operation. Elsewhere, suspicious that Pullman is going on a date with DAC Strickland, the team follow her to the Hero of the Year awards. There, Standing is confronted by an old colleague, Rob Petty, and can barely disguise his disgust that Petty is attending as a nominated hero. There is clearly history between the two men, but how will Standing feel when his boss invites Petty to contribute to the case? duration 49:50   STEREO

    Moyers & Company [#208H] Fighting Creeping Creationism * Religious fundamentalists backed by the Right Wing are finding increasingly stealthy ways to challenge evolution with the dogma of creationism. Their strategy includes passing education laws that encourage teaching creationism alongside evolution, and supporting school vouchers to transfer taxpayer money from public to private schools, where they can push a creationist agenda. But they didn't count on 19-year-old anti-creationism activist Zack Kopplin.
    From the time he was a high school senior in his home state of Louisiana, Kopplin has been speaking, debating, cornering politicians, and winning the active support of 78 Nobel Laureates, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the New Orleans City Council, and tens of thousands of students, teachers and others around the country. This week, the Rice University history major joins Bill to talk about fighting laws and voucher programs that let publicly-funded creationist curriculum in the backdoor.
    * Also on the program, journalist and historian Susan Jacoby talks with Bill about the role secularism and intellectual curiosity have played throughout America's history, a topic explored in her new book, The Great Agnostic: Robert Ingersoll and American Free Thought.
